Source: SEER Program, National Cancer Institute. Incidence data are from the SEER 9 areas (http://seer.cancer.gov/registries/terms.html). Data are age-adjusted to the 2000 standard using age groups:<1, 1-4, 5-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85+. Analysis uses the 2000 Standard Population (Census P25-1130) as defined by NCI (http://seer.cancer.gov/stdpopulations/).

X - Statistic not available for sex-specific cancer sites. Delay-adjusted incidence not calculated for Blacks due to low annual case counts.
